Movie Diary 10/5/2016

Denial (Mick Jackson, 2016). David Hare wrote the screenplay for this drama about Holocaust denial being put on trial in the U.K., so despite the mostly pedestrian direction, the film is compelling. It’s also about something else very much of the moment – how we must stop respecting opinions when those opinions are stupid. Couldn’t be timelier. (full review 10/14)

Moonlight (Barry Jenkins, 2016). A festival hit, with some very fine actors. The director has come a ways since Medicine for Melancholy. (full review 11/4)
